SPRING-FORD SPP SCORE ONE OF STATE'S TOP HIGHEST
The results are in, Spring-Ford Area High School has one of the top highest School Performance Profile (SPP) in the state!
A school's SPP score relies heavily on state assessment scores, but also includes college readiness tests, industry standards-based assessments, graduation, promotion, and attendance rates, as well as evidence of offering rigorous courses as other factors in the calculation.
SPRING-FORD CORE INFORMATION
As part of the new regulations, Pennsylvania’s Core Standards offer a set of rigorous, high-quality academic expectations in English Language Arts and Mathematics that all students should master by the end of each grade level. The PA Core Standards are robust and relevant to the real world and reflect the knowledge and skills our young people need to succeed in life after high school, in both post-secondary education and a globally competitive workforce.
The Curriculum and Instruction team has created a page to help parents understand the history of PA standards, what Spring-Ford has done to transition to the new standards and what parents can do to increase student growth. Click here to learn more.
THE WASHINGTON POST SELECTS SPRING-FORD AREA SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL AS ONE OF “AMERICA’S MOST CHALLENGING HIGH SCHOOLS”
Spring-Ford Area High School (SFAHS) students and staff continue to receive national recognition for outstanding work, most recently as the school made The Washington Post’s 2015 list of America’s Most Challenging High Schools.
The Washington Post ranks schools through an index formula that’s a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement (AP) exams and/or International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates. SFAHS has seen an increase in the number of AP exams that students elect to participate in, making their ratio 1.250 in 2015.
Congratulations to our students and staff!
